You can ground the wire to a toggle switch to act as the parking brake.

You just follow the sequence of braking and e-brakeing as stated in your owners manual, substituting the ebrake with the toggle switch.

Just give it a ground to the red/white wire. no switch.

    The term "ground" refers to a connection to the earth, which acts as a reservoir of charge.

I would like to watch a video in my car but it says warning must set park break & my park break is set but it still won't start.


Pull the stereo out and look for the parking break wire on the back, take that wire and ground it.

Check your ground wire to lights with DVOM; should read battery voltage from park light terminal of socket to the ground wire. If voltage is low you have a poor ground connection; if not, you may have a bulb/socket shorting across to park lamp ckt.

I am about to install my boss bv8962 unit into my vehicle but I want the parking break safety feature bypassed. What do I do differently during installation so that my passengers will be able to watch tv...


Yes, you can bypass parking break feature by connecting the corresponding wire of BV8962 to ground, also you could add a 3 pin toggle switch to get a normal and bypass mode switch, this can be wired of this way, the common pin of toggle switch to your video unit, at the other pin, it could be connected the parking break wire (normal mode) and the remaining one to ground (bypass mode).

How do I bypass the parking break to alow my kids to watch movies while im driving? (Kenwood DNX7100)


The parking brake wire (light green) from the kenwood unit needs to see ground. You could either ground the wire or use a toggle switch to ground the wire.

Kenwood KVT-617DVD Car DVD Player i get the sound but no picture.


its a safety feature, the dvd player can only work when your car is in park or if your park break is on, reason being is that the dvd player is grounded so that when your parked you can watch a movie safely, i know boring!!! so all you need to do is find where its grounded at the park break and re-ground the wire to a area that isn't a break( anywhere other then your break switch) and the dvd will play wen in motion. what i mean by this is that there is a little switch in your centre console where when your break is on the button is down allowing power to the wire, when the break is up it releases the power giving no juice to the wire allowing the dvd player to ground and not work. all you need is to make the wire able to work without being attached to anything other then a live ground. i hope that helped, as i had this problem and was so frustrated until i figured it out take care, matt

Parking Break Override


Simple if you don't know where to ground the wire to, just ground it with the ground wire of the radio. Twist the pink and black wires together, then put them with the black ground comming from the car. Hope this helps.

Try grounding the parking brake wire instead of attaching it. Should bypass brake requirement for video but really should effect powering on

Video while driving


Yes, just did this myself with a Lanzar unit. Instead of attaching the parking break wire to the parking break, attach it to the ground wire or any other useable ground connection. Works great.
